As I was in prayer one morning, I went into a vision where the Lord Jesus pulled me into His body; I was walking in Him, seeing the world through His eyes and from His perspective. It was only a few minutes, but it was profoundly impactful. During this experience, the Lord revealed to me that His Body, the Ekklesia, must see the world through His eyes, and shift their worldview to be reframed and reset to His.
We are in the midst of a reset and Hebrews 11 holds a key that will help us navigate through it.
The Eyes of Faith
Hebrews 11:1-3, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible... (more)
While in prayer, I heard the Holy Spirit speak three words to me: "Reset, Rescue and Release." He then showed me a vision of a cast being placed upon an injured wrist and forearm. God said, "I am resetting the broken areas and bringing alignment to crooked places. I will use them to show forth My glory."
When my wife and I first were married, my grandmother fell and broke her wrist. When it healed the bone that had fractured was crooked and she was left with the bone protruding. The doctor told her that she would have to have surgery in order to reset the bone in the correct position. Whenever broken parts in our lives do not heal correctly, God will do a "reset" in order to make crooked places straight.
"I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron." (Isa. 45:2)
In my vision, I saw the wrist and forearm being placed in the cast. The wrist and forearm enables movement in the hand. The hand is a vivid picture of God's way to bring forth the commanded blessing of provision to His people.
On March 16th, 2020, I woke up with a strong pressing in my heart. I felt the rays of hope and could sense a new day in sight. I felt the Lord say that even in the midst of the trial we're going through with the coronavirus crisis, it is a time to believe for the future and to have hope for it.
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'" (Jeremiah 29:11) (Photo via Unsplash)
God has great things in store and the storehouses will overflow... (more)
In prayer the other morning, I was reminded of the significance of a vision I had at the end of December 2019. I believe it carries significance for the current times we are in, throughout the world, as we pray against the invasion and effects of the coronavirus. God is listening for the sound of His overcoming Church to arise and shift the battle!
Vision from December
As I prayed, I saw Jesus handing out white stones to Believers who have been pressing in to overcome and bring God's Kingdom into the earth. In Revelation 2, the angel delivers the word of the Lord to the church at Pergamos saying, "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it" (Rev. 2:17).
This is a mysterious passage of Scripture written to a church in the city of Pergamos, where the seat of satan was known to be. It was a city of deep idolatry and demonic thrones of iniquity, but more concerning was the compromise of righteousness being allowed in the fellowship. Some held the doctrine of Balaam, which caused people to believe they could eat things sacrificed to idols (compromising with the world) and embrace and practice sexual immorality without consequence.
This church also harbored those of the Nicolaitan cult, which taught that because of grace people could live in any sinful manner they chose, because they were not under the law but under grace... (more)
